The beer pours a Pitch Black with a medium tan head. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate, maple syrup, licorice, and molasses. It tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate, faint maple, licorice, and molasses. The feel is medium, but not much Barrel. A really good porter from Kane.

Even after the time in the barrel, the appearance is similar to regular Sunday Brunch, with that classic coffee black that's a bit shininer, and a densely tall mocha foam that slowly settles to a creamy ring.

Smell is certainly boozier up front but taste is still mostly that same old classic Sunday Brunch, which is no complaint at all. But starting with aroma, where it's more barrel forward, the peppery bourbon enhances the maple with its own maple-esque accents, as all the sticky cinnamon frosting and slightly smoky dark coffee are still delectably present. There's even a touch of candy corn I sometimes get from drinking straight bourbon.

Much like BA Mexican Brunch, the barrel is hard to detect up front, but as it warms and as you sit with it, the warming swallow begins to bring in some contrasts. The cinnamon is slightly dusty but earthy and brown sugary, while the bourbon is a little smoky and is nicely complimented by the coffee before a slight numbing, peppery sting comes in on the way down.

The full body has a solid froth that feels substantially satisfying before a semi-dry swallow.

I could drink Kane’s dark beers all day every day forever. I'd give up pretty much any other beer to have access to their stuff on the regular.
